Wolf Pangloss's Fish Taco Stand

"But, reverend father," said Candide, "there is horrible evil in this world."

"What signifies it," said the Dervish, "whether there be evil or good? When his highness sends a ship to Egypt, does he trouble his head whether the mice on board are at their ease or not?"

"What, then, must we do?" said Pangloss.

"Hold your tongue," answered the Dervish.

Romanian Hippocide

Hippocide, from the greek for horse "hippos" and the latin "-cide" for killing.

It turns out that in its vast socialist wisdom the EU forced Romania to ban horse-drawn carts from its roads, and the result has been that owners of now economically useless horses turned them out and stopped feeding them. Gethin Chamberlain writes:
Once, they would have pulled wooden carts along the city's streets or worked in the fields, as horses have done in Romania for centuries. But now they have been abandoned by their owners, victims of a disastrous attempt to bring the country into line with European Union law by banning horse-drawn carts from main roads.

Over the past month, hundreds of stray horses have been found roaming the streets and parks of Romania's major cities. Many are half-starved and barely able to walk; some have died where they were discovered, unable to get back to their feet.

So, we find that the incredible wisdom of state socialism kills animals with greater efficiency and cruelty than an animal testing lab. The irony is that animal rights activists are some of the biggest fans of socialism because they know there is no other way that their extremist, anti-human agenda will ever take effect.

Now we can add anti-horse to the list of adjectives in front of their agenda.
